This is a nice park on the water. It has a concession stand and a water fountain. I would have given it a higher rating, but dogs aren't allowed.

While not "downtown", it is only a 10 min. walk from Market Square. There are a few separate areas to the park so be sure to keep walking and find them all. Public restrooms are available. The outdoor cafe was not open when we were their, but there was one. They also had a schedule posted for outdoor concerts. Just... More

On Saturday there is a great farmers market up on the hill by the police station. Parking is across the street. There are lots of local artisans with great produce, baked goods and wonderful grilled meats. Also some locally made jewelry, woolen yarns and handmade soaps. The local population frequents this market which means it has long term value.

Best place to visit in Portsmouth. There is all kinds of shows, art, gardens and the waterfront all in one spot. If you are coming to portsmouth get the schedule and be sure to catch the park. Don't miss Strawberry Bank across the street.

The upkeep of this park is superb - beautiful flowers and a nice place to relax and enjoy the river views, eat a sandwich or just sit and visit with family and friends.

Enjoyed walking through the park on a lovely afternoon. Flowers in the garden were in full bloom, and beautiful! We enjoyed sitting on the park bench and taking in the sights as well as a bit of shade. Made for a very relaxing day!

Excellent place to sit and relax along the harbor. While we were there a yoga class was going on along the water. We had lunch two days there. Many beautiful flower gardens with trees and benches.

Along with the fantastic historic buildings, this park along th waterfront is exceptional. We were here in August, and the flowers were amazing. Some interesting historical markers and an historic dock building used by John Paul Jones to outfit his ship. See both gardens, including the one with the fountain.
